John, Kay, Glen Joe, Lovina, and all of your spouses, and extended family members have our deepest sympathy. Peggy was much too young to have left this world. As we age it seems so much more difficult for someone younger than us, to depart. We send our thoughts, and prayers to you all in your time of sadness.

Sincerely, Susan and Ron

What a lovely person Peg was I will miss her contagious laugh and warm smile. She was an inspiration for us all she showed us all how to die, how to do it the right way with fun and laughter all the way to the end. She was so much fun to be around she made coming to work a joy. I will miss her around the holiday times even the ones that were not thought of or celebrated. She also left goodies on our desks for every holiday that came up. She even left goodies on my desk because she would be out and would find something that she thought I would like or reminded her of me. She was just a very thoughtful, giving person. I loved her very much and will miss her while I am down here. God just gave me one more reason to not be afraid to die I have yet another person I love that is there already waiting for me when it is my time to go.

Love you always Peg,
Julie Correll

Nedra, Mr. and Mrs. Michaels, cousins and other family, friends: I&m sitting at the computer while visiting my daughter in Texas as I read about Peggy passing away. I am so sad and sorry along with you and want you to know you have my sincere prayers over the next days and months. I remember Peg well, Nedra&s little sister, with a perpetual smile, a slightly shy (almost mischievous) light in her eyes, and lots of energy! Though I don&t recall the last time I actually saw her, I can tell you that as I look at her picture, I too miss her.

Peg was such great fun and a wonderful companion at all the singles events when we were both in Singles Plus in the 1980s. Everyone teased her about her height, but she more than compensated for her short stature with her big personality and warm heart. Those platform shoes helped, too.

I always loved running into her around town at various festivals and having a nice conversation about our lives. She was so busy, so productive and so attractive to everyone who met her, I never understood why she was so often alone. Maybe they just couldn&t keep up with her.

All of us alums of Singles Plus remember her warmly and will miss her for a long, long time. I hope her son and granddaughters will always know how much she was a part of the community and a valued friend to all.

I met Ryan at a swim party years ago and was so impressed by his good manners, his personality (so like his vivacious mother) and his handsome six year old face.

May God bless and keep you and yours in His grace and peace, forevermore!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Peg and Family,
Peg, you will be ever dearly missed! Clearly,Purdue will not be the same without your smiling face. Peg was an exceptional human being and a dedicated black and gold Boilermaker. During the last few months I have become reaquainted with my dear cousin and her strength during my time of need has been truly exceptional, even though she was fighting her own good fight. Her faith was inspirational and her zest for life is unforgettable. I will dearly miss more talks and her comforting words. I can only hope she is giving my dear Michael a big hug for me, another for Billy, and two hugs for Grandma and Grandpa Michael.
Her legacy is her beautiful, growing family and they are lucky to have two of the best great-granparents in the world. Their faith is likewise inspirational to Rich, to me and to my family. My many prayers are with Aunt Linda &Uncle John who have, for the second time, buried a beloved child; with Nedra for having to say goodbye to a sister and a brother; and with her wonderful son Ryan, his lovely wife Mindy, and their bright and lively children Ashley and Payton. Their memories of this last Christmas I am certain will be unforgettable! Peg always knew how to enjoy life! So I will celebrate her legacy but seeking the love, hope, and joy in the world.

Love always,
Jan (Michael) Torbeck and family
